Un duro golpe recibió el pueblo y la Revolución Cubana en uno de sus primeros años, el azote implacable del ciclón Flora. Miles de personas perdieron la vida y cuantiosos recursos económicos y sociales se vieron afectados. El país no contaba en ese año de 1963 con una infraestructura totalmente desarrollada para el enfrentamiento a este tipo de catástrofe. No obstante, el Gobierno Revolucionario trabajaba en ello, lo que permitió que fueran menos los daños y más rápida la recuperación. Todo esto aparece recogido en este libro. Junto a las nuevas leyes, decretos, y documentos de diversa índole aparece registrado todo un año de transformaciones siempre en beneficio de la sociedad. Es un texto de importancia capital si se quiere llegar a conocer la historia de Cuba.

From the Author

“The Russia that Satter depicts in this brave, engaging book cannot be ignored . . . Required reading for anyone interested in the post-Soviet state” (Newsweek).Anticipating a new dawn of freedom after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, Russians could hardly have foreseen the reality of their future a decade later: A country impoverished and controlled at every level by organized crime. This riveting book views the 1990s reform period through the experiences of individual citizens, revealing the changes that have swept Russia and their effect on Russia’s age-old ways of thinking.“With a reporter’s eye for vivid detail and a novelist’s ability to capture emotion, he conveys the drama of Russia’s rocky road for the average victimized Russian . . . This is only half the story of what is happening in Russia these days, but it is the shattering half, and Satter renders it all the more poignant by making it so human.” —Foreign Affairs“[Satter] tells engrossing tales of brazen chicanery, official greed and unbearable suffering . . . Satter manages to bring the events to life with excruciating accounts of real Russians whose lives were shattered.” —The Baltimore Sun“Satter must be commended for saying what a great many people only dare to think.” —The Globe and Mail (Toronto)“Humane and articulate.” —The Spectator“Vivid, impeccably researched and truly frightening . . . Western policy-makers would do well to study these pages.” —National Post
